The Tucson facelift will hit the showroom floors in March 2020. It will be offered in two trims – the GL Option & GLS (all-wheel-drive).
After quite a long period of waiting, Hyundai has finally pulled the covers off the Tucson facelift today at the 2020 Auto Expo. As expected, the SUV features multiple design revisions both inside and out while maintaining the overall silhouette of its predecessor. Speaking of the changes outside, most noticeable of the lot are the redesigned lights, larger cascading grille, new set of alloy wheels, and modified bumpers. Inside, though, the Tucson facelift has gotten a complete overhaul – from a redone dash layout to a new 8.0-inch free-standing touchscreen. Feature-wise additions include a panoramic sunroof, Hyundai's BlueLink connectivity suite, wireless phone charging, & an 8-way powered driver's seat.
With the mid-cycle refresh, the Tucson also gets a pair of BS-VI compliant engines – a 2.0-litre NA petrol motor (148bhp & 192Nm) and a 2.0-litre turbo diesel (179bhp & 400Nm). While the petrol derivative will continue with the 6-speed torque converter, the Tucson facelift diesel will be rolled out with a new 8-speed automatic unit.
The Hyundai Tucson facelift will continue to lock horns with the Jeep Compass, Honda CR-V, and the upcoming VW T-Roc.
